Plastic crap makes for transformative art at LACMA

plasticcrapLACMA’s Grand Entrance Plaza currently has a suspended maelstrom of sickeningly-colored plastic crap in anticipation of its upcoming exhibition, Your Bright Future: 12 Contemporary Artists from Korea.

HappyHappy is the name of the site specific work by Choi Jeong-Hwa.

LACMA’s blog says it’s “actually nothing more than floor-to-ceiling strands of thousands of household containers procured from local 99¢ stores.”

Indeed.

The exhibit runs June 28-Sept. 20. plasticcrap2
